Subject Re: Excluding inherited developers
Date Sat, 09 Dec 2017 11:00:20 GMT
I fear there is no feature for that

this is an opportunity to explain the code:
1. everything is in maven-model-builder [1]
2. the step of interest here is inheritance assembly [2]
3. and if you look at source code [3], there is code to avoid emptying data 
during inheritance, but no merge facilities and even less merge with cleanup 
(= what you're looking for)

If you can imagine a clean way of configuring inheritance with merge and 
cleanup at pom XML level, the impementation of the merge feature will be coded 
at this place

Don't hesitate to discuss the feature both from a user point of view first and 
trying to code it: we're looking for contribution. This one should not be that 
hard to code, IMHO, but the important step is to ind a way to make is usable 
in pom.xml.
